Did you know?

The total body protein mass is about 12kg for a 76kg individual. Nearly half of our body protein is in the skeletal muscle, while blood and skin contain about 15%. As we age, we lose muscle mass and therefore protein. It is important to maintain muscle mass to maintain physically active lifestyles, for physical performance, and to remain independent in our old age.4
Based on all the measurements of protein quality (including biological value) whey is a superior protein source. It has a biological value of 104, which is higher than the value for casein (77), soy protein (74), beef (80) or wheat (64).5
Whey protein contains all the necessary essential amino acids (building blocks for protein) for health, and is efficiently absorbed and used by the body.1

What is whey?
"Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet eating her curds and whey..." Milk contains two major sources of protein: casein and whey. During cheese and curd manufacturing, casein is responsible for producing the curds while whey is generally considered a waste product. Outside of the cheesemaking world, whey is recognised as a highly usable protein source, rich in essential amino acids. Our bodies use 23 amino acids to construct proteins; eight are classified as essential and must be supplied by our diet. Whey also provides vitamins, minerals and other very beneficial compounds for health and wellbeing.1

Do I need to make IsoWhey into a smoothie?
No, IsoWhey also mixes well into 200mL of low fat milk, soymilk, oat milk, water or low fat natural yoghurt. Place 1 heaped scoop into a protein shaker or wide-neck bottle and keep this at your work desk or in your bag; add your desired liquid base and shake to dissolve for a no-fuss instant protein drink.

The nutritional information panel states IsoWhey contains xylitol. What is xylitol?
Xylitol is a carbohydrate naturally produced by plants. It has the same sweet taste as sugar without negative effects on dental health. In fact, it has a beneficial effect on dental caries.2 Xylitol also differs from sugar in having no adverse effect on blood sugar levels when taken at appropriate doses.3
